If you’re one of the many still rocking Gingerbread on your Android device and into installing a leaked version of BBM that might possibly crash BlackBerry’s servers, then this news might be important for you.

Earlier this week BlackBerry announced that a ‘special release of BBM for Android smartphones running Gingerbread’ is currently in beta and will officially launch sometime in February. If you can’t wait, and we take no responsibility for what happens to your device, a leaked beta version of BBM for Gingerbread (OS 2.3.3 or higher) has found its way online. According to N4BB, this version lacks BBM Channels and BBIDs are not whitelisted (not sure why BlackBerry didn’t do this), and there’s also a few minor UI tweeks.

    Unfortunately no, is a native Android app, the PlayBook can’t run Android native code.

      Damn shame BB wont even support their own devices.

      The PlayBook is almost 4 years old and was discontinued, why would they keep supporting it?(I have one but I understand them)

      He’s not a trasher he’s a full on wanker that plays with himself while looking at pictures of heins. At least, that’s what I’ve gotten from his previous posts here.

      I have one PlayBook, 2 Dev Alpha B and one Limited Edition Z10 and I’m waiting for a Q.

      I’m an avid BlackBerry10 developer, please shut up, you’re making a fool of yourself.

      The Android runtime on Tablet OS can only run Java-based Android apps, native C++(called through JNI) simply won’t work(different story on BB10).

      Whether you want to believe it or not.
